|Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic Delayed
Despite an ongoing situation worldwide regarding COVID-19 pandemic, developer/publisher Ubisoft was all set to release upcoming tactical shooter Rainbow Six Extraction and 50-player sports racing title Riders Republic in late 2021.
In a surprise announcement today, Ubisoft has delayed Tom Clancy shooter game Rainbow Six Extraction to January 2022 and has moved over Riders Republic launch date for another eight weeks, from September 2 to October 28, 2021.
Rainbow Six Extraction is a spin-off to its widely popular predecessor title Rainbow Six Siege and was originally named as Rainbow Six Quarantine. Before they had to postpone, Ubisoft planned to release R6 Extraction on September 16, 2021.
Announced back in September 2020 during Ubisoft Forward event, extreme sports game Riders Republic was scheduled for February 2021, which was later delayed indefinitely before settling on to a fresh launch window of September 2021.
Already delayed once before due to global lockdown and workplace restrictions for Coronavirus last year, Ubisoft has revealed a first-look at Rainbow Six Quarantine/Extraction enemies, story bits and what completely sets it apart from R6S.
Ubisoft has unfortunately decided to push back their previous deadline in order to deliver a full AAA-experience for series fans. Meanwhile, dev team will make necessary changes and polish it further to take advantage of newly extended time.
At the same time, they will also be working on beta program for multiplayer sports game Riders Republic to receive player feedback. Ahead of release, Ubisoft intends to reflect on community response and tweak overall gameplay experience.
